Whitefish senior Luke May and a group of other local student-athletes are signing national letters of intent today to compete at the Division I collegiate level.
May, a two-time Class A state champion javelin thrower, will compete at the University of Minnesota. The 6-foot, 190-pounder is currently leading the Whitefish football team through the football playoffs as the Bulldogs’ quarterback. He has passed for 1,564 yards and 19 touchdowns and only two interceptions while also rushing for 747 yards and another 15 TDs. Whitefish travels to Miles City this weekend for a semifinal game.
May’s personal best in the javelin is 206 feet, 7 inches, which won him his first state title as a sophomore. He won last year’s title with a throw of 194-09. He will try to claim a third championship next spring before moving onto the Big Ten Conference next year.
Whitefish senior Coral Schulz, a two-time Class A state champion golfer, is committing to play at Montana State University.
One of the best golfers in Montana for any class, Schulz captured her second consecutive title this fall, shooting 76-80—156 at the Sidney Country Club Oct. 2-3 to win by five strokes. She also helped Whitefish claim the team trophy.
Another top golfer, Glacier senior Teigan Avery, signed a letter of intent Wednesday morning to compete at the University of Montana.
Avery won two Class AA state championships during her high school tenure and placed second this fall.
Glacier senior Hailee Bennett signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Seattle Pacific University. The 5-foot-7 point guard earned Class AA all-state last season after averaging 13.5 points per game, 3.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists.
Wednesday is the early signing day for future college athletes. National Signing Day is in February.
